    Stay at El Panama Hilton or the Intercontinental. Both are great; the Intercontinental is my personal preference. It has a casino on the first for. Both are in the ritzy "banking" district. Rent a car; taxis can be scary.....

    Not sure what Pablo is talking about re taxis. They are cheap and easy to get around in for Panama City. It's MUCH more scary driving yourself here unless you're used to it. Try driving next to a bus that suddenly changes lanes without any signaling, happens all the time.

    If you want to get out into the country you can take buses unless you want to go off the beaten track, then rent a car.
